Map-oriented custom Girder appfor geospatial metadata browsing

Project description

Girder GeoBrowser


Plugin Installation

pip install girder-geobrowser

Custom Python Commands includes 2 custom commands:

  • build_ui: This command builds the frontend from the gui folder, and places the build into geobrowser_plugin/external_web_client.
  • clean_build: This command cleans the project of the files generated by the previous command.


The standalone frontend will be served at /geobrowser if the built front-end path exists (i.e. python build_ui has been run), or if the mode is not development. So, if running girder serve in development mode, you should see no errors if the frontend is not built. However, if running girder serve in production mode, it will attempt to serve the files, regardless of if they've been built or not, throwing an error through cherrypy if they don't exist.

Custom Girder CLI Commands

This plugin adds custom Girder CLI commands:


This command manually runs the Geospatial plugin on any Girder paths specified (defaults to '/'). To specify one or more path, use the -p argument. For example, to run this command on the collections collection1 and collection2, you would run:

girder extract-geospatial -p collection/collection1 -p collection/collection2


This command populates the specified collection(s) with the provided metadata. The provided metadata must be in JSON format. The rules for setting metadata follow that of the setMetadata function. This script requires that you specify 1 metadata JSON file and one or more collection IDs. For example, to populate the meta field of collections 5d3201b4dbdd758d55819007 and 5d3201c54731b3d3a1350823, with the file metadata.json, you would run:

girder populate-collection-meta -i 5d3201b4dbdd758d55819007 -i 5d3201c54731b3d3a1350823 -d metadata.json

To use a Girder path instead of a collection ID, use the -p/--path option (also works with multiple):

girder populate-collection-meta -p /collection/foo -d metadata.json

When using this option, if the specified path doesn't exist, it will be created.
